WASHINGTON, DC—The title of this intriguing sculpture by Robert Smithson (1938-1973) is fitting. “Gyrostasis” refers to the type of physics associated with rotating bodies and their ability to maintain equilibrium. The Minimalist curvature is actually composed of a series of triangles.
“Gyrostasis” is on view at the Hirshhorn Museum where it is a part of the permanent collection.
